Thank you forte benedek for this wine tasting experience. Valentina was an amazing host with great knowledge of the wines. Would highly recommend, great value for money & beautiful location!

Easy to find and friendly welcome followed by a brilliant tour. We were at 5pm, the last one of the day, so our driver/captain took us all the way round to the other side of the castle!

It was great, a great crew, a very charming captain, who explains many buildings with picture cards and also lets the boat go very fast, photo shoots with a sailor's hat incl.

This was a fantastic little cruise that was both informative and fun. Guide was great and my family says it was a highlight of the vacation!

Really fun ride around the lake. Very good thing to do before tasting Gelato in Sirmione.
